    Yeah, Zeus figured it out before hearing it straight from Pandora just based on Pandora's actions and she confirmed it. We do have Zeus saying that the current laws are stupid, but he might be for a different kind of revision than Voltaire wants. While Voltaire wants to be able to play with Humans like toys, Zeus might argue for living with Humans on more equal footing. Back on Voltaire's plan though, he knew about Tedd's second purpose, if he wanted magic to change, his best bet would have been to reveal the second purpose to Tedd, making her ineligible for the meeting. that would have left Arthur and Van to convinced the WoM to change or not and Van probably wouldn't have been able make a convincing argument for minimal changes. So there must have been another reason why Voltaire want Tedd to be angry at the WoM, but still be eligible. What else would an angry Tedd do aside from threaten magic to the point of guaranteeing a severe change?

    And, with Zeus there to hear Pandora talking about that, is obvious that the information will play in the Imortal law revision.

    At one point she was sitting with her legs tucked under her a bit, but she might have shifted to a cross legged position to let Catalina sit on her knee. It hard to tell though but sitting crosslegged might make it less painful to get flattened like that.

    I am sure she had weighty reasons.
  6. Story, Monday February 19, 2018

    While Van didn't say much during the meeting to convince the WoM, without his presence Tedd might have been unable to focus. Even with the knowledge of Pandora's "refresh" Tedd might still have been too emotional to be able focus on what she needed to say. Whether or not Tedd recognized Van as family, there was probably still something about Van that gave Tedd the strength to keep going. Maybe, Voltaire did seem to have more faith in Tedd doing what he needed Tedd to do though. Would require the law change taking longer than I would expect, but otherwise I like that idea. Although I like the idea that Voltaire just completely misjudges other immortals more - I mean, that even without Pandora's argumentation those new rules will be something Voltaire wouldn't like. I kinda wonder if maybe Voltaire's forgotten about Elves being able to have children as well, he knows that Pandora broke Immortal law to protect her son, but Voltaire might not know about how humans with magic are descended from Immortal/Human interaction and might not have been watching to hear Pandora telling Adrian. How many Immortals would side with Voltaire if they knew that their descendants were the "Toys" he speaks of?

    And him learning Pandora was the one who cheered Tedd up.

    Impulse is like a sledgehammer. Kapow, instant damage. I would actually doubt that fall, but the previous strip has to say otherwise. And to think Rhoda got a-weight with this.

    Insistent, but still underestimating a bit. Moving on, really.
  10. Things You Only Noticed On Reread

    http://www.egscomics.com/index.php?id=272 You know, to the uninformed reader, this could be taken as intentional foreshadowing of Elliot's and Sarah's eventual break-up. However, those who read the commentaries during the End of an Era storyline would know better.
  11. Les XXIIIes Jeux olympiques d'hiver

    My poor old Burmese Catso was chronically confused. He was such a good kitty but he had this constant expression that made him look terminally baffled. He would do things like fall off the bed while shifting position and then sit on the floor like, "I am almost completely sure that I did not mean to do that but somehow this happened anyway. Why?"
  12. Story, Monday February 19, 2018

    I suspect Voltaire may be unseelie...
  13. Story, Monday February 19, 2018

    Yes, this is not first time we speak about it. Was it you who had the additional assumption of Arthur being aware he has contact with Voltaire?
  14. Story, Monday February 19, 2018

    Honestly, I wonder why 'Magic' would assume that it could stay hidden for any amount of time when there are beings such as Col. Sanders around, who're limited to manipulating their environment by 'guiding and empowering' people. Even without the internet, that would be a recipe for disaster.
  15. Story, Monday February 19, 2018

    Interesting thought. I can see this as well. I really like this idea. That would be such a blow to Voltaire. Yeah, I really like this idea. But my big scene I want to see, Voltaire learning that Tedd was the one who convinced Magic.
  16. Story, Monday February 19, 2018

    I'd like to remind the rest of you that I'm on the record that I think Voltaire had some contact with Arthur and is the reason Arthur knew a change in magic was coming and why.
  17. Story, Monday February 19, 2018

    Nice to finally get an inside look at Voltaire's motivations, and see that they were more or less what most people seemed to be expecting. I somehow didn't catch that, but you're right. I love it.
  18. Story, Monday February 19, 2018

    Or Pandora coming back sooner. Or both. Maybe a refresh has a much shorter respawn time than a reset, possibly due to not having to start a new personality from scratch.

  20. Story, Monday February 19, 2018

    My bet for the remaining part of plan CM: Pandora comes back, reduced but functional, in time for the debate on changing Immortal law. The fact that she refreshed rather than reset then somehow allows her to play an integral part in stopping Voltaire. Perhaps she'll even argue for a different set of changes that Voltaire hates even more than the current laws.
  21. Story, Monday February 19, 2018

    He also didn't know about Van, but he assumes that Tedd wasn't the one that convinced the WoM. To be fair, without Tedd Van would be unlikely to change decision of Will of Magic. Voltaire's assumption is simply wrong. (Hmmm ... he also seem to not know about those two seers which found about their second purpose ... so he likely wasn't the one who told them.) Not mine. I know at least one worse ... wait. Two. Maybe three? Not sure ... Charlie is definitely more dangerous, but might not be more evil. (Hmmm ... Charlie is rule lawyer. With Voltaire's power, he would rule the world - WITHOUT breaking "empower and guide". Snadhya, meanwhile, is more crazy than fairy of her age would be, and quite delusional ... she would avoid the reset by being convinced she's not doing anything wrong. Yeah, compared to them, Voltaire is lame, which is fitting considering he's just starter enemy for Tedd to train on before moving to actual thread.) Plan CM seems working for now. Pandora did something which is big enough Immortals may decide to change their laws.

    No more diabetes transformations.
  23. Story, Monday February 19, 2018

    While my hate level on Voltaire was fairly high to start with, he's really my number one hate target that's a fictional character right now.
  24. Story, Monday February 19, 2018

    He also didn't know about Van, but he assumes that Tedd wasn't the one that convinced the WoM. Also, @The Old Hack , could you please merge my thread into this?
  25. Story, Monday February 19, 2018

    ... which makes more likely he was secretly "guiding" him to informations about reset. And we have confirmation that he wanted magic reset, that it was to make it LESS public ... and that he underestimated number of seers even more than Arthur. Meaning, plan CM was not THAT complicated. Also, not only he didn't predicted Pandora making Tedd feeling better, he didn't even NOTICED.
  26. Story, Monday February 19, 2018

    http://www.egscomics.com/index.php?id=2462 Yep, Voltaire wanted magic to change so that he could mess with those who lost their spells. And looks like there was a time when Fairies acted like gods or demigods and he wants to go back those ways. But how will he accomplish that now that Plan CM has failed?
